My son and I fished here from 6/16/14 until 6/19/14 and had a wonderful time. I am a 61-year-old handicapped, 350-pound man and the Waterfall staff did an outstanding job taking care of us. They don't advertise themselves as handicapped friendly and the resort really isn't set up to care for people like me but they did a fantastic job making my trip one I will always remember. They made sure we had everything we needed and provided us transportation in their resort golf cart whenever we needed it. My wheelchair was useless trying to get to the dining room each evening and they made sure we were always there on time. They were able to find a special heavy chair I could fish from each day and the captain did everything for me so all I had to do was to reel in the fish. Next year my oldest son and his wife plan to go back with us and fish. We are already making our plans. It is the perfect place for a family to spend the fishing trip of a lifetime.
